“Apart from pro­vid­ing timely medicines and vac­cines to more pa­tients in need, med­i­cal re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion or aux­il­iary equip­ment should be in­cluded in fu­ture med­i­cal pub­lic ser­vices.”

Agreed Fan Yubo, direc­tor of the Na­tional Re­search Cen­ter for Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Tech­ni­cal Aids, which is part of the Min­istry of Civil Af­fairs: “In­ter­net, vir­tual re­al­ity, big data, ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence, 3-D print­ing, new ma­te­rial... all these cut­ting-edge sciences and tech­nolo­gies are ded­i­cated to solv­ing prob­lems re­lated to med­i­cal re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion

“Ag­ing, food safety is­sues and life­style have re­sulted in many chronic dis­eases in China. Peo­ple need the help of med­i­cal re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion equip­ment. Cur­rently, there is a gap be­tween China and other coun­tries in the med­i­cal re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion in­dus­try. China needs to bring about in­no­va­tive break­throughs and have its own med­i­cal re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion brands.”
